Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
At Harris Personal Injury lawyers, we have seen a broad range of injuries stemming from accidents and fight to pursue the fullest amount of compensation available to accident victims and their families. These are just a few of the numerous injuries that can result from a motorcycle accident:
- Broken collarbones, backs, arms, wrists, or legs
- “Road rash”
- Head trauma, concussion, and traumatic brain injury
- Torn tendons
- Bruising and hematomas
- Emotional distress
Proving Your Damages
From overwhelming medical bills to lost income and the steep cost of vehicle repairs, the expenses stemming from motorcycle accidents can quickly bankrupt victims. The expenses that victims incur are called “economic damages.” These are damages that you can objectively, concretely establish by producing copies of bills, receipts, and pay stubs, as well as other evidence of money spent on damages flowing from your accident. You may also be entitled to recover “non-economic” damages, which are intangible losses like emotional and psychological distress. Non-economic damages can be difficult to prove. An experienced personal injury attorney, however, will know how to craft an argument to help you recoup non-economic damages. A particularly egregious incident like a collision with a drunk driver or a motorist who was fleeing from the police at the time of the accident may form the basis of a “punitive damages” claim. However, these claims tend to be rarer and courts generally grant them at their discretion. Speak with your personal injury attorney about whether to seek punitive damages in your case.
How A Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Will Help You
Insurance companies are not motivated to help accident victims. To protect their bottom lines, they will pay out as little as possible on a claim. As such, it is critical to involve a personal injury attorney before you communicate with a claims adjuster. We will work with you to collect your medical records, pay stubs, repair receipts, and other concrete evidence to put a monetary value on your claim. We will present your claim to the adjuster assigned to your case and pursue the highest amount of compensation possible. We will never settle a case for less than what you deserve, and so if our negotiations with an insurer are not successful, we will vigorously represent your interests in court.
